Innovative Child Research

The UW-Green Bay Child’s Lab seeks to find new truths in children research. The lab is directed by the visionary Psychology Professor, Dr. Sawa Senzaki. The research team consists of brilliant faculty and student researchers studying children’s social, cognitive, and brain development in an attempt to solve the problems of the future. The team typically works with children from birth to 10 years of age and often conduct cross-cultural studies by working with children here at Green Bay community and around the world.

Transform the Future of Child Care

The UW-Green Bay Research Team is always looking for junior scientists, who can help our research by participating in our projects. Our safe project designs are fun for children to participate. They will play games, tell stories, or watch videos. The research is only possible with the support of many families like you.

Be part of an exciting scientific discovery.
